This European Standard specifies requirements for two types of hose and hose assembly (Type 1 and Type 2) identified by their maximum working pressures (Type 1 7 bar and Type 2 15 bar) and main use, i.e. Type 1 is for road and rail tanker use and Type 2 is for dockside use. The types are further divided into two classes related to the maximum temperature of the product to be conveyed (Class A up to 175 °C and Class B up to 200 °C). The hose constructions may be smooth bore (SB) or rough bore (RB). NOTE – These types of hose or hose assemblies are not necessarily suitable for all types of petroleum based products or coal tar, or products containing coal tar.
